With so much concern over drilling and fracking to produce oil in our own country, it's reassuring to know that emerging energy technologies can help us to make the most of our resources. On this week's Driving Force Radio, we talk with Alan Forbes, President and CEO of Independent Energy Partners. With 25 years in the energy industry, Forbes has launched more than a dozen energy-related ventures, guiding projects with several major energy companies.
The new technology we discuss today, enable increased yields from oil fields and the capture of energy from other sources.
Geothermic fuel cells target unconventional hydrocarbons, like oil shale and tar sands. It is also applicable to unconventional oil production, such as recovering stranded oil from abandoned oil fields.
